Bonnie Henna Discusses Children’s Stories with Nal’ibali (Plus: Win A Copy of Her Book)

Eyebags & DimplesNal’ibali spoke to Bonnie Henna, author of Eyebags & Dimples, about the importance of stories and books for children.

Henna, who has two children, spoke about story time being the best quality time and about the importance of respecting what stories your children want to hear.

Actress, Survivor contestant and now author, Bonnie Henna takes a break from the launch of her autobiography Eyebags and Dimples (Jacana Media) to talk motherhood and helping your child grow.

The 33-year-old mother of two, now based in Cape Town, shares her storytelling secrets with the Nal’ibali reading-for-enjoyment initiative – and tells us why reading with your kids is the best quality time you can get.

She says:

Being a parent is a beautiful yet humbling experience. We learn so much about parenting from the way we are parented, without even questioning our beliefs. Deciding how you want to uniquely parent your children takes constant effort and evaluation, most of all commitment.

Nal’ibali and Jacana are offering you the chance to win a copy of Eyebags & Dimples by answering a simple question on the Nal’ibali Facebook or Twitter pages before 27 October:
